Varsity+Victory+Over+SCE

On February 16, the Wheaton Warrenville South Tigers faced off against Saint Charles East for the first time this year. The Tigers were 3-2 coming into the matchup while SCE was 1-3.

With the Tigers being ice shooting from the 3 point line, they had to find another way to win this game.

This is exactly what they did. Tigers put SCE back in their place in a whopping 70-51 win over their opponents on Tuesday night. Parker Brown had a bounce back game dropping a career high of 25 points and 12 rebounds.

“It was great to come out and put up points.” Brown said in an interview earlier this week. “We have really been struggling with 3 point shooting and rebounding so we knew that’s what we needed to execute this time around.”

Even though the tigers went 3-24 from behind the arc, they still found a way to get things done inside the paint. Junior Tyler Fawcett played a big role in that. This is his second year starting on varsity and he played a big role with offensive and defensive rebounding. 

Even after a big win Wheaton Warrenville South senior Aidan McCoyd says “As a team we can improve on making better decisions in transition and limiting our turnovers.” After every game Coach, Mike Healy, and the guys reflect on what they did well on and where they can improve. By doing this they believe by the end of the season they will be playing their best basketball.

There have been a lot of changes with their season this year and the Tigers have adapted greatly. When talking with Parker after a great win over SCE he talked about how different it was without fans cheering them on. “It’s great to finally be back out here and playing again,” said Brown. “It’s just so different without a 6th man cheering us on. The parents are great and do their best cheering but nothing compares to Tigers 6th man on a friday night.”

As the Tigers are about halfway through their shortened season Wheaton Warrenville South Senior Aidan McCoyd says “So far the season has been great although a lot different because of covid… Myself and the rest of the team are constantly being reminded to spread out six feet or put our masks above our noses, but we will do anything to keep playing.”

The Tigers now are focusing on their matchup this weekend against their cross-town rivals, the Wheaton North Falcons.
